Fatherly producer Evan Kaufman dips his toe into the world of pricey baby products by reviewing the Bloom Fresco High Chair, which retails for a whopping $550. He asks the question we all have, “Does My Baby Really Need This?”
The Bloom Fresco high chair comes with three different recline features. It is, according to the people at Bloom, the world’s tallest high chair. Again, it retails for $550. The Fresco is very modern looking, resembling an egg or an apple product. It comes in multiple colors, though the most popular is chrome.
It comes with two different attachable trays for eating, a larger play tray and a smaller one for feeding baby. The Bloom Fresco has it all: a booster insert, 360-degree swivel, and a comfort nest. It comes with a detachable safety bar. All the fixings!
Here’s what’s good about the Bloom Fresco high chair. It grows with your baby, so even though it’s pricey, you can use it for a long time. It has several different features that allow it to be used by newborns, toddlers, and even children ages 2 and up. The 360-degree swivel feature also allows you to position the baby however you’d like and make sure that the little one has a view of Mom, Dad, or maybe even Elmo.
Here’s what’s bad about the Bloom Fresco High Chair. I mean, this is obvious, right? It’s insanely expensive. The price point is super high for just a baby’s high chair. Also, it’s hard to clean. It contains many nooks and crannies, perfect for a newborn to shove food into. For the price point, you shouldn’t have to constantly clean it. But you do. It’s also very heavy and not portable. No bringing your 30-pound high chair over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house.
But now, Evan asks the ultimate question: Is this crazy expensive high chair worth it for your newborn baby? No. It’s way too expensive. Unless you’re a huge fan of The Voice and need your baby to be able to spin 360 degrees. But otherwise, your baby doesn’t need the Bloom Fresco High Chair.
